Kalathas is a small natural bay on the edge of a ravine, 10 km northeast from Chania. It is an ideal place if you want to have unwind and relaxing holidays, the perfect destination for a family and holidays close to the sea.

The sandy beach of Kalathas, is lined by pine trees and a lovely islet near the beach. A restaurant and a beach-volley field lie on the sandy beach. Tersanas beach is 1,5km northwest to the village, where families prefer to swim with the kids. A restaurant and a canteen can be found on the beach with local traditional dishes. Another excellent, sandy beach lies in Stavros, 6km way to the north. The village is surrounded by Monasteries and churches. The ones mostly worth to visit are the Gouverneto (Lady of the Angels) and the Katholiko (Saint Ioannis, the Hermite). Kalathas is an excellent home-base for visiting West Crete on the peninsula of Akrotiri. It's a new, quiet settlement, mainly for people who want to move out of Chania. It has seen a lot of building activity in recent years as more and more Cretans are moving out of town and tourist attraction due to it's famous, quiet, sandy beach lined by pine trees and a lovely islet in front. Furthermore there are many activities that can take place in this beach, such as windsurfing, scuba diving, canoes etc. At the surrounding area one can find supermarkets, gas station, bakery, restaurants and taverns where one can enjoy fresh fish and the traditional Cretan kitchen.

Akrotiri lies 10 km north-east from the Venetian harbour of Chania. Here are the tombs of Eleftherios and Sofoklis Venizelos, the airport of Chania and the port of Souda. Akrotiri is a place for nature lovers, with interesting walking and hiking paths through the unspoilt gorges with amazing diversity, natural beauty and living traditions.

Its dry climate combined with the sea breeze forms an ideal environment not only for people but also for the farm products which are renowned for their high quality and taste. With picturesque sandy beaches, all awarded with the Blue Flag, century-old monasteries and churches, impressive caves with rich lithological and archaeological interest, historical monuments, Akrotiri attracts many visitors every year, who enjoy Cretan hospitality and nature at their best.

"Akrotiri" (the Cape) is the common name of the peninsula that lies to the north-east of the city of Chania and administratively constitutes the Municipality of Akrotiri of the county of Kydonia of the prefecture of Chania. The official name of the peninsula is "MELECHAS" while its ancient name was "Kyamon".

Its 10.000 residents live in around 20 villages and settlements. The town hall is at the village of Pithari 6,5 km away from Chania. Other villages are: Sternes, Horafakia, Kounoupidiana, Mouzouras, Korakies, Argoylides, Aroni, Agios Nikolaos, Pazinos (or Paxinos), Anemomyloi, Marathi, Kathiana, Kalathas, Kampani, Stavros, Kalorouma, Hordaki, Rizosklopo, Agia Zoni and Profitis Ilias.

The road network is quite extensive and in good condition, reaching all the villages and beaches of Akrotiri. There is also a very frequent bus connection with Chania.

The biggest part of the area is flat except from the eastern side which is rocky with a rugged hill range (the highest being Sklopa: 528m high)-giving the impression of high mountains - and pierced by a few gorges that end to the sea in some very scenic rocky coves.

Another characteristic of those hills are the numerous caves that can be found there, with beautiful stalagmites and stalactites sometimes with amazing shapes. Findings of archaeological and historical interest prove that the caves were used as a place of worship as well as a refuge from the invasions of pirates.
